The “Stamp Duties Act” of 1866 meant that documents taken to a Stamp Office had to be assessed for duty payable. Upon payment of the assessed sum a stamp or stamps denoting the amount of duty payable (or the Fine Paid) had to be affixed to the doccument.
It was found unnecessary to have Revenue Stamps as well as the DUTY PAID IN FULL stamp affixed and the use of this stamp was soon discontinued. Only one printing was made.
